Ogio’s Highly-Anticipated Gotham Collection Now Available, Introducing Never-Before-Seen Matte Styling To The Golf Course

Salt Lake City, UT (May 6, 2014) – With a look inspired by the sleek lines found in today’s sports cars and fused with the hottest trend of Matte Black finishes, OGIO’s highly-anticipated, ultra light Gotham golf bag collection is now ready for the fairway. First unveiled in January at the PGA 2014 Merchandise Show in Orlando, Fla., the Stand Bag and Cart Bag feature OGIO’s cutting-edge, revolutionary design and technology.

“There is a lot more to golf than driving for show and putting for dough; golfers today want to represent ‘their look’,” commented Tom Gocke, OGIO’s Global Golf VP. “Combined with a proprietary blend of exotic water, stain repellent fabrics and evolutionary construction techniques, the Gotham golf bag collection delivers a head turning appearance with a feather-light feel.”

The Gotham golf bag collection reduces external zippers to allow for a sleek look. It offers six interior protected pockets for easy access to balls, tees, valuables and any additional golf gear. An external, insulated hydration sleeve is also perfectly positioned for quick access when you need to cool down.

Weighing less than four pounds and built with OGIO’s infamous four point-strap system and 7-way Holster performance top with side putter pit and integrated grab handle, the Gotham stand bag makes the perfect companion for walking the course.

The Gotham also has a 16-way 2XBarrel cart top with integrated handles, stadium club seating, a front dual putter pit, a fleece lined GPS/valuables pocket, and a “no interference” cart strap tunnel and extensive storage options.

“We really push design boundaries with the Gotham collection,” said Tom Gocke, OGIO’s Global Golf VP. “Engineered with aerodynamic sculpting to deliver a clean and ?aggressive finish, this bag generates adrenaline levels on the course while giving the user the comfort and space they need.”

The Gotham stand bag is now available for $240 MSRP and the cart bag for $280 MSRP at
